No idea but I would assume its bad.
Its going to be small stakes, 200NL live is small.
Its going to be full of bad players (they wont fold!) .. because people are on holiday, they are on a boat, they are possibly bored and this poker thing looks fun. No-one goes to a casino to fold.
There will most likely be one or two good players and the rest will be bad.. very bad.. rediculusly bad.
Dont think big preflop raises will discourage them, they want to see flops, dont know what standard raise sizes are and think everyone is bluffing them anyway.
